Arch Classroom は、様々な技術的トピックに関する新しいスキルと知識を学ぶための授業を提供するプロジェクトです。授業は Arch Linux コミュニティのボランティアによって教えられます。どんなレベルの専門知識を持っている人でも、IRC で授業を受けることができます。
授業は、メーリングリスト arch-general、フォーラム、twitter のような他の放送場所でアナウンスされます。以下の表は、開発中の授業とアナウンスされた授業の一覧です。授業の開発段階は起案中、スケジュール設定中、キャンセルの3つです。授業がアナウンスされたら、日時が示されます。

If you want to teach a class, the first thing you need is a topic. There is no limit other than it should be interesting to Arch Linux users and that it can be presented over IRC. See the list of requested classes on this page for ideas. You can also teach the same topic as one of the previous classes.
If you are interested in teaching, contact one of the coordinators[リンク切れ 2021-05-09], or User:Meskarune who will guide you in creating a class. The following sections outline the process. Also see the administration page[リンク切れ 2021-05-09] on the Arch Women wiki.
The class requires a lesson plan which at a minimum outlines the topics the class covers. It will serve as your notes and guide you through your class. Give it as much detail as you like. It will later be published to help students who missed the class as well as future instructors.
Start your lesson plan with a goal or objective in mind. What will students be expected to learn in this class? Decide what sort of students you are targeting — beginning Linux users, people familiar with particular software, and so on. (Many past classes targeted both beginners and advanced users.) Make a list with all the software requirements the class will need, and a list of prerequisites with the knowledge students should have before taking the class.
Create additional materials to aid the students. Diagrams and code listings can help students visualize the concepts taught. Essays can further delve into details not covered in a class and also help students who have difficulty following the tumultuous IRC format. You may also want to create a reading list of outside sources.
Plan for the class to run for 1-1.5 hours. Expect the students to interrupt with comments and questions. If the subject can not be reasonably covered in that time, the class can be broken into segments, e.g. part one today and part two in a week.
All materials and lesson plans are hosted in the classroom-media git repository and made available on the website of Arch Women.
Decide on a date and time (UTC) which best works for you. Since Arch Linux has a global reach, hold multiple sessions to accommodate the different timezones. Perhaps one session in the morning for Asia and Oceania and another in the evening for Europe, Africa, and the Americas.
Classes are scheduled a month beforehand to give time to make announcements.
Announcing the class
Announcements are made on the arch-general mailing list, the Arch Linux forums and Arch Women's twitter a few weeks before the class is held.
The following information is required:
- title and description of the class
- prerequisites (if any)
- date and time
- biography of instructor(s)
